Parkers overall rating: 4.5 out of 5 4.5

Given that the C-Class was awarded the top five stars by the safety experts at EuroNCAP, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG safety is going to just as good. There's an array of safety kit on offer. There are seven airbags as standard for driver and passengers, as well as ten driving assistance programmes available including Attention Assist and Active Bonnet, Adaptive Highbeam Assist, Distronic Plus and Pre-Safe, active Lane Keeping Assist (steers the car back into the lane if correct action not taken), Active Blind Spot Assist (warns driver and applies braking if you move the car out into a lane when a car is in the blind spot) tand Speed limit Assist.

You're not going to opt for the Coupe if you need to carry a couple of kids and lots of luggage, but it does hold its own against the likes of the BMW M3 and the Audi RS5. With 450-litre of loadspace there’s not too much to grumble at – the RS5 is only bigger by 5-litres and the M3 Coupe is smaller by 10-litres of luggage space. If you need more space than there is the saloon which packs a 475-litre boot space and can carry four adults.

For maximum practicality go for the Estate version with its 485-litre boot (expands to 1500 litres with rear seats down). In its class the C63 AMG fares well and there are enough cubbies and drinks holders to keep you happy, and is unique in offering three bodystyles to choose from.
